Eliza Gilkyson – Easy Rider

Een bijzondere Amerikaanse singer/songwriter is Eliza Gilkyson. Ik heb haar een paar keer live zien optreden in the Woods in Lage Vuursche en was iedere keer weer erg onder de indruk van haar prachtige stem en de intensiteit van haar performance.

Hier zingt ze Easy Rider samen met de groep Strings Attached. Dat is een groep die bestaat uit lokale muzikanten uit Austin in Texas die zich vooral richten op een crossover in de muziek. Zo gaven ze o.a. concerten met muziek van The Beatles (het hele White Album), Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel en Jimi Hendrix. Daarnaast doen ze veel optredens met singer/songwriters en popmuzikanten.

Easy Rider
Born by the light of a double faced moon.
Sucking on a bottle and a silver spoon.
It’s a long way to Jordan,
when you’re carrying a tomb.
Easy rider.

Golden boy can’t do no wrong.
Heading out west with a dollar and a song.
In those Hollywood hills where I belong.
Easy rider.

Farther along, easy rider.,
We’ll understand it by and by.
Farther along, easy rider.
Live in the sunshine by and by.

Jubilee far and the greenwood crew.
The wellington boys from hullabaloo.
Everybody want to love you,
but they couldn’t get through.
Easy rider.

Betrayal sealed with lovers kiss.
Your memories were made of this.
You want to numb the pain,
and you can’t resist.
Easy rider.

Farther along, easy rider.
We’ll understand it by and by.
Farther along, easy rider.
Live in the sunshine by and by.

You paid your money and you took your ride.
Somewhere along the way,
you let the whole thing slide.
Left you standing empty handed at the river side.
Easy rider.

Now I miss the talking sweet and sad.
I miss the kind of love we almost had.
I know the devil drove my father,
but the Lord got daddy.

Farther along, easy rider.
We’ll understand by and by.
Farther along, easy rider.
Live in the sunshine by and by.
By and by.
